Workout Wednesday

13 Apr

As I said last week, I am going to try and share a new workout with you every Wednesday! I still don’t have pictures for my moves but I promise to take some soon!

Today’s workout is a treadmill workout for those rainy spring days you can’t get outside. I get bored really easily on the treadmill so if I can come up with an interval plan that changes frequently it is really helpful! I also added a five minute ab routine to end with.

*As always work at your own pace and adjust to your fitness level.  Always consult your doctor before starting a new workout routine*

Wednesday Workout 2: Treadmill Edition

All running intervals should have an incline of 1%

  • Warm-up: Min 1-4: Walk at 4.0
  • Min 4-6: Run at 6.0
  • Min 6-8: Run at 6.3
  • Min 8-10: Run at 6.6
  • Min 10-12: Run at 7.0
  • Min 12-14: Run at 7.5
  • Min 14-15: Run at 8.1
  • Min 15-18: Walk at 4.0 incline 8%
  • Repeat minutes 4-18 until you reach 32 minutes
  • Min 32-36: Sprint as fast as you can (for someone doing this workout comfortably above an 8.5) for 45s, hop on the edge of the treadmill and rest for 15s.  Do a total of 4 times.
  • Min 36-38: Walk at 4.0 incline 8%
  • Min 38-40: Walk at 3.5

5 minute abs: Hold a plank for 45s, rest for 15s.  Side plank 45s/side, rest 15s in between.  Do 20 reverse crunches followed by 45s of bicycle crunches.

Wipe Sweat. Be Proud.

    Hey, unrelated, but how often do you recommend foam rolling an IT band? Once a day, once every few days? Mine is incredibly sore after 24 hours.

    Great interval workout! I also love intervals, or anything that allows me to run as fast as I possible can! Planks are the best!
